Catalogue Note

At the age of 37, Constant Troyon visited Holland, where he was much influenced by the work of the Dutch Golden Age painters Aelbert Cuyp and Paulus Potter, who were famous for their depiction of animals. This discovery complemented Troyon’s earlier experience in the Forest of Fontainebleau with other Barbizon artists and it would remain a deep interest throughout his entire career.
